​​​​​​​I felt a POP


This is real bad…


I had ruptured the cruciate ligament in my knee at Gaelic Football training



A year away from competitive sport would ensue



This will sound weird but I was relieved



I had lost my passion for football and needed a break



Such an injury forced me to do the inner and outer work



To become better physically and mentally



During the injury I read a book which described a game changing outlook:



The “better than before” mindset



Meaning it is not ok to constantly compare ourselves to a previous ‘better’ self



Don’t think about getting back to where you were before



Have the boldness to go further and want to be better than before adversity



I did all the rehab prescribed to me and started training the mind through mindfulness



These elements helped me to come back better than before



I focused on where I could improve and accepted where I couldn’t



I won’t get faster however I could get much better on kicking with my right foot and mental resilience during games



If you feel stuck lamenting a previous self and keep reminding yourself of that



And know this is holding you back



If you have the boldness to challenge these thoughts and tell them to fuck off



Then I’m the man to contact to get you started on your new health and fitness journey

The featured image above with great friend and teammate Kevin Keary is the first title I have won as a player since the injury



After the final was the second time in my life that I cried tears of joy.



More on that in future broadcasts
